encFS 1.7.2-1

Hi all,

here's another encryption tool for those having trouble with TrueCrypt: encFS 1.7.2-1

Note: USE THIS APP AT YOUR OWN RISK! I'M NOT RESPOSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE OR DATALOSS RELATED TO THIS APP!
(none ever occurred to me so far...) I have not tested this app thoroughly so you should consider yourself some kind of beta tester. ;)
If you still feel tough (and/or paranoid (jk)) enough to give it a try, here's how it works:


INSTALL:
Unpack the attached archive to the root of your USB drive, connect it to WDTV and reboot/power cycle the unit.
When the app.bin loaded successfully you should have 3 new bianries:
    encfs
    encfsctl
    encfssh


USAGE:
1) First you have to create two empty folders, one for the encrypted data (this is where the actual data goes and a second as mountpoint for the first.
In this example i will create a folder .crypt for the encrypted data and crypt as the mountpoint:
Code: Select all
mkdir /tmp/media/usb/USB1/xxx-xxx/.crypt
mkdir /tmp/media/usb/USB1/xxx-xxx/crypt


2) Now we mount the .crypt folder on crypt, the first time we do this the encrypted filesystem is set up.
For starters answer the first question by simply hitting RETURN and enter your password twice. (Lost passwords can NOT be recovered! So make sure you remember it)
Code: Select all
encfs /root/.crypt /root/crypt
Creating new encrypted volume.
Please choose from one of the following options:
enter "x" for expert configuration mode,
enter "p" for pre-configured paranoia mode,
anything else, or an empty line will select standard mode.
?>

Standard configuration selected.

Configuration finished.  The filesystem to be created has
the following properties:
Filesystem cipher: "ssl/aes", version 3:0:2
Filename encoding: "nameio/block", version 3:0:1
Key Size: 192 bits
Block Size: 1024 bytes
Each file contains 8 byte header with unique IV data.
Filenames encoded using IV chaining mode.
File holes passed through to ciphertext.

Now you will need to enter a password for your filesystem.
You will need to remember this password, as there is absolutely
no recovery mechanism.  However, the password can be changed
later using encfsctl.

New Encfs Password:
Verify Encfs Password:


3) You can now copy the files you want to protect to the crypt folder and it will be stored encrypted in .crypt.

4) To protect the contents of your encrypted dir from others simply unmount it
Code: Select all
umount /tmp/media/usb/USB1/xxx-xxx/crypt

few years have passed...

Is there anyone using encFS today ? Is still a valid option in 2016, are there better / newer alternatives ? I know that TrueCrypt can be one, anything else ?

What would be the correct way to mount an encFS volume at boot ? Just put the mount command inside the /conf/S99user-script ?
